Explosive new gameplay video at reveals ‘Eagle Offense’ mission’s deadly airfield assault

Thursday 24th September/… Set to deliver an intense, immersive and visceral military sandbox gaming experience, Codemasters today announced that Operation Flashpoint®: Dragon Rising™ has gone gold and will be available from October 6th (US) / 8th (PAL) / 9th (UK) for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC.

Gamers can today see the most explosive moments taken from Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising’s ‘Eagle Offense’ mission in a new preview video, now showing at The trailer reveals how a strategically vital airfield is turned into a bloody, chaotic battleground as a USMC force, accompanied by aerial support, assaults dug in PLA positions.

The violence, ferocity and carnage of war is brought to life as troops on both sides attack in authentic formations, use cover realistically and engage in ranged, close-quarters and vehicular combat. USMC forces fight through the airfield’s perimeter before infiltrating the Control Tower, eliminating enemy targets with rapid, ruthless aggression. The Marines then assume defensive positions in readiness for the PLA counter-attack. A Chinese WZ-10 attack helicopter is spectacularly blown out of the sky by a shoulder-launched surface to air missile, before the conflict culminates with PLA armour advancing across a battlefield surrounded by mortar fire and strewn with burning wreckage. This flashpoint is still white hot…

Powered by the award-winning EGO™ Game Technology Engine, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will set the standard for accessible, authentic war gaming.

    crysis 2 is coming to consoles doesn’t mean it will be the same game. If you want proof of that look at crysis.

    it’s called dumbing down or watered down game play for console gamers.

    that is true for all pc games to consoles, look at dragon age.

    yea and console can’t handle cuting edge gaming.
